Scrap Day in May

On friday afternoon/ night i got together with some local girls for the monthly Scrap n Chat session.....and it was soooo good to do some scrapping again!! I made up some kits, so i was ultra organised and not leaving anything home and for chance to just sit and be not i can be often.....and i was very pleased to complete 3 pages, and have lots of laughs an plenty of chatting too!!

Ethan's Race
I did the background of this one before i got to the scrap day. Playing with mists and scrunched glad-wrap. And i typed my journalling before cutting n sticking it all in place. I used a older 'crate paper' range and embellishments. I seem to be finding all these older bits n pieces in my stash now i am doing my Project Life, so it is nice to find some use for them on my 12x12 pages.
Turning Five 
Here on this one i have used Crate Paper 'Party Day' papers and stickers, and found these wooden Prima buttons amongst my stash- which seemed to work in with it all.
This one is inspired and a lift from Ebony van der Starre. I love the bright colours she uses along with adding some random stamping. So i tried out adding colour by spraying my mist onto some plastic packaging, adding a tad of water and just adding to the page....there is no guarantee how it'c gonna come out...but i was happy with  my first attempt!! Then adding some misty lines using an old credit card! Once again i have used older Echo Park paper ranges & cute alpha stickers here....and some new stamps.

So now i am keen to get amongst all my stash again....but first i better get out and take some photos of the boys on the tractors (finally) for my PL album.

Thanks for popping on by,

Have a nice day,

Sue xx
